    Fabliau of Florida
    by Wallace Stevens

    Barque of phosphor
    On the palmy beach,

    Move outward into heaven,
    Into the alabasters
    And night blues.

    Foam and cloud are one.
    Sultry moon-monsters
    Are dissolving.

    Fill your black hull
    With white moonlight.

    There will never be an end
    To this droning of the surf.
